During the coronavirus lockdown in the spring of 2020, the S.M.A.K. launched an appeal to make drawings and send them to the museum. These drawings are now on display in an intimate presentation.

A museum exists thanks to its public. The halls of S.M.A.K. were eerily quiet during lockdown. We had to self-isolate and distance ourselves from others. Since drawing is an activity you can perform in isolation, S.M.A.K. invited as many people as possible in late March to send in their drawings as part of the ‘Drawing in Lockdown’ project. Anyone could participate: young and old, amateurs and artist. This enabled the museum to actively keep in touch with the public during the closure.
